Book one to fall in love with…

Calling Kupid


Stuck on a beautiful Hawaiian island on Valentine’s Day, Kate Kupid is sure of one thing; being single on a tropical island made for lovers is a giant waste of time. Until she has an encounter on the beach that will change her life.

Eleven months later, back in the cold of Snowberry, Minnesota, the last person Kate expects to walk into her law firm is Mr. Hawaii Playboy himself. Dressed to the nines in an expensive Italian suit, Gideon Armstrong Jr. has come to reclaim what is rightfully his, Kate.

Gideon didn’t realize a dangerous adversary wasn’t afraid to use Kate as a prize in his game of cat and mouse, and now she must trust Gideon to keep her safe. Back in the Islands of Love, Gideon wants a second chance to prove he can fix Kate’s broken heart, but Kate wonders if her mashed up heart can handle the kind of love he has to offer. When bullets start flying on Kupid’s Cove, Gideon grabs his chance to make Kate his, once and for all.


Book two to continue your love affair…

Me and Mr. I.T.


Living and working on the beautiful island of Maui, Ellie Monroe is happy with her life as marketing director for Kupid Enterprises. Professionally she’s satisfied, but her personal life is another story. Rejected too many times, she’s afraid to take a chance on the one man who might heal her heart.

Maltrand Kekoa, Mr. I.T. as his co-workers call him, has overcome a lifetime of obstacles to get where he is today. Professionally Mr. I.T.’s at the height of his game, but personally, he’s crushing on a woman who doesn’t seem to know he exists. All that changes when a new assignment requires Mally and Ellie to don a pair of wedding bands to catch a thief.

Mr. I.T.’s job is simple; protect Ellie while she digs into the backgrounds of dangerous people. It’s up to Mr. I.T. to use his wits and his heart to make Operation Me and Mr. I.T. more than a temporary arrangement.


Book three to make you beg for more…

The Forgotten Lei


Hiding in plain sight on the beautiful island of Maui, Leilani Iona knows her days are numbered. The past has caught up with her and she’ll pay with her life.

Niko Nikolaev has a complicated relationship with Maui, and his newly widowed mother. Drawn in by Lei’s exotic beauty, Niko struggles to separate the man in him from the job at hand, finding the men responsible for her torment.

Lei knows her determination and will-to-live won’t be enough to get out of this deadly mess, and when bullets start flying she must rely on a man she barely knows. As Lei and Niko struggle to stay alive, she learns love runs deeper than blood, heroes exist, and Cupid’s arrow always finds its mark.


The final book to satisfy your cravings…

Hiding Rose


When speed dating went terribly wrong, and Rose found herself inches from dying, she gladly accepted the offer from her friend, Kate, to hide out at her island resort. Rose’s first job was to heal her broken body, and her second job was to get the daycare up and running for Kupid’s Arrow Resort. The job she ignored was healing her broken heart.

Sawyer Kanki’s life was spiraling out of control. As the executive chef of Kupid’s Table he had found great professional success, but his personal life was in shambles. He had no purpose left in life, until Kate Armstrong gave him one, on a silver platter.

Sawyer spent eight months healing Rose’s body, and now he’s ready to heal her heart. Rose spent eight months denying her feelings for Sawyer, but she’s not free to give him her heart. The man who nearly took her life is still out there, and he’s hunting her.

Working together makes it easy for Sawyer and Rose to grow closer, and when the threats start coming, Sawyer is the only one she trusts to hold her. Roses, seafood, and long walks on the beach are all Rose craves, but someone else has other ideas. Will she and Sawyer’s fledgling love make it to Valentine’s Day, or will they both be DOA?
